Many of these crimes are punishable by a long prison sentence. Attorney Nayib Hassan can quickly assess the facts of your case and plot out a defense strategy that maximizes your chances of receiving a fair resolution.
Blackmail is the act of threating embarrassment or financial loss to another person unless they follow your demands. Under 18 U.S. Code § 873, “Whoever, under a threat of informing, or as a consideration for not informing, against any violation of any law of the United States, demands or receives any money or other valuable thing, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned.” For committing federal blackmail, you face up to $100,000 in fines, up to a year in prison, or both.
You may be charged with bribery if you are accused of giving, offering, or soliciting something of value in order to influence a public official to act in a certain way. Under the Federal Bribery Statute, the government must prove that you acted with corrupt intent to engage in a quid pro quo. Based on the specific facts of your case, you could face serious fines, and/or up to two years in federal prison.
When to Contact a Criminal Defense Lawyer
Nothing is more important than picking up the phone and contacting a criminal defense attorney after being accused of or arrested on a criminal charge. Even if you haven’t been arrested yet and the police are simply investigating their suspicions, it is in your best interest to pursue legal counsel as soon as you are able to.
At the Law Office of Nayib Hassan, we know that bargaining for lesser charges is often not in the best interest of the client. Many prosecutors will put the pressure on in order to secure a guilty plea, often leading the accused into believing that there’s no way they will be found innocent in a court of law. However, our clients often stand the best chance of being proven innocent or having the charges dropped if we proceed with a trial.
We’ll investigate the evidence available in your case and will exhaust every possible resource in order to put together a strong, compelling defense that meets the prosecution at every turn. We will fight zealously for your rights under the law, regardless of the crime you have been charged with.
Don’t wait to get legal help if you or someone you love have been arrested for a crime or have been accused of committing a crime. Contact Law Office of Nayib Hassan today for a consultation to discuss the details of your case and to determine what the next best step should be.
